House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi on Thursday said President Trump made a major blunder by pushing to repeal and replace Obamacare on the anniversary of the overhaul’s passage, saying it’s unwise to pick a day and then hope the support is there in time.
“Rookie’s error, Donald Trump,” Mrs. Pelosi, California Democrat, said at her weekly press briefing.
Mr. Trump and GOP leaders are reaching for a highlight-reel vote to gut the Affordable Care Act on the House floor late Thursday — seven years to the day after President Obama signed his legacy overhaul into law.
Yet they’re still trying to cobble together enough votes for the plan, as conservatives push to kill a bigger chunk of the law and centrists balk at a plan that’s estimated to result in 24 million fewer Americans holding insurance a decade from now.
Mrs. Pelosi argued it’s Legislating 101 to get folks on board before you reach for a political prize.
“You don’t find a day and say we’re gonna pass a bill,” she said.
